Think you’re not gifted enough to create? Think again! “I love the idea of couture and its emphasis on creation. That’s where I made my name – in design – and there’s where I’d like to stay.” – Jimmy Choo
How many of us have made decisions we later regretted? Experiences are supposed to teach us what to do and not to do, but many find themselves making the same mistakes over and over again simply because they failed to think of the consequences associated with the decision in the first place. Every day we make countless decisions about things that go on in our life. From what to wear, what to eat, where to live, what school our children should attend, to what time to leave the house before heavy traffic meets us, what errands to run when we leave work, and so on and so forth. We feel we “we are grown” and can make our own decisions. And while that may be true, have you ever stopped to think, whose decision really is it anyway?
Nothing makes life worth living knowing you served others with the best version of yourself. When you do so, you allow others to see your brilliance. Your true self shines through and you walk away more fulfilled than those you’ve helped. You are worth so much more than playing down who you are. Your message, your mantra, and your mission deserves global exposure and recognition. You have no time for small talk or people around you who expect you to live up to their expectations. You have to show up in the world and live for you!
How many of you are contemplating your exit strategy? Do any of you have a plan? What about a step by step blueprint that will give you peace of mind and a way out while still securing you as you go forth in your calling? There are many who want to open a small business but have no backing and no clear cut method of execution.
Look around your home. What is it saying about you? How is your purpose being reflected in your space? Are you inspired by your surroundings or do you dread setting foot through the front door? Your home is so much more than a foundation, walls, and a roof. It is a place that nourishes your mind, body, and spirit. These five elements are essential in transforming any space into a sanctuary of peace and purpose.
So then, as occasion and opportunity open up to us, let us do good [morally] to all people [not only being useful or profitable to them, but also doing what is for their spiritual good and advantage]. Be mindful to be a blessing, especially to those of the household of faith [those who belong to God’s family with you, the believers].–Gal. 6:10 AMP
